The Gould Piano Trio visit Chester Music Society Celebrity Concerts for the first time to perform the final concert in the 2015/16 season.

The concert takes place in St Mary’s Centre at 7.30pm on Wednesday, March 9.

Formed in 1987, the members of the trio are violinist Lucy Gould, cellist Alice Neary, and pianist Benjamin Frith.

For more than 20 years the Gould Piano Trio has remained at the forefront of the chamber music scene, having been launched into an international career by winning the first Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition.

Selected as YCAT artists, they subsequently became Rising Stars, performing at major venues in Europe and North America.

Familiar to listeners of BBC Radio 3, they perform at major festivals and venues in the UK and abroad, with regular tours to the United States.

They have developed a close relationship with Wigmore Hall in London and draw particular inspiration through creating their own chamber music festivals in Corbridge, Northumberland and in Cardiff at the Royal Welsh College of Music.

They will perform a programme of trios by Schuman, Maxwell Davies and Mendelssohn.

Tickets are £14 and available from 07831 710558, the Visitor Information Centre, Town Hall Square, Chester or via the website www.chestermusicsociety.org.uk.
